Nietzsche began his career as a classical philologist and later turned to philosophy. His work left a huge impact on generations of philosophers, psychologists, poets, theologians, playwrights, and novelists.

He became the youngest person ever to hold the Chair of Classical Philology at the University of Basel at the age of 24 but he didn’t own a teaching certificate nor had completed his doctorate. He resigned to that post after 10 years due to the health problems that plagued the rest of his life. He completed most of his writings in the following years.

Most of his time spent with pain and half-blindness, Nietzsche wrote his masterpiece — Thus Spoke Zarathustra. His masterpiece and other books have influenced generations of people.

Nietzsche has gone through many health problems throughout his life and suffered from a complete loss of his mental faculties in 1889 at age of 44. He lived the remaining life in the care of her mother until her death and then in her sister’s care until he died on 25 August 1900.

Nietzsche’s writings cover many topics, but he’s most famous for his views on morality. He believed that God was dead and that religion was a big hoax. He also coined the phrase “God is dead” in his book The Gay Science.
